Fertility Control Clinic message to CWRR – 40th Birthday

We are happy to publish the letter from the Fertility Control Clinic to CWRR on the occasion of the FCC’s 40th Birthday.


Make your Stand for Choice!

Join Campaign for Women’s Reproductive Rights (CWRR) for a Counter Protest against an ongoing anti-abortion protest at Parliament House.

13th September 2012 between 7:30am-9:30am
Macarthur Street, East Melbourne

Helpers of God’s Precious Infants have staged a protest at Victoria’s Parliament House on each Parliamentary sitting day – except one.  As planned on 14th August 2012 we turned up but they were absent.

So we’ll do it all again.  Join us on Macarthur Street, East Melbourne between 7:30am-9:30am.  Hold our “HONK IF UR PRO-CHOICE” signs – your own sign – or simply make your stand for choice.

With our presence and with each honk of a car horn, we will remind MPs that the vast majority of Victorians* believe in a woman’s right to choose.

“Separation of Church and State – Oh My God that would be great!”
